Work has also cut down my hours so I'm not over working while I'm feeling really unwell. I cannot thank them enough for this as the morning sickness is the worst thing ever in pregnancy, just you think you start to understand it, it completely changes. Also the doctor has ordered me to try and relax more, before she starts forcing me to slow down, I said this to Hubby and his reply was, "Do you even know how to relax?"
The spending ban is going well, the only thing I've had to buy was some pregnancy vitamins as I had ran out, and I did treat to a £5 Chinese when I really couldn't be bothered to cook one night when Hubby wet out with his work. I have however learnt that I have way more beauty stuff than I knew and have be hiding it in various places. I will not need to buy skincare/make up for a while (hubby wants to include nail varnish but that's not going to happen!). I haven't had any magazines as Bubba has also been distracting me enough as I cannot stay awake enough to read.
If you like to follow my pregnancy and more general ramblings I will be doing more on my tumblr page The Many Things of Unevenlemming as I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I would like somewhere to document it (well somewhere to have rants about it). This weekend is a matter of tying up some loose ends and then a lot of weight will be lifted from my shoulders.
From next week: Normal service will resume
Wednesday, 15 May 2013
The past two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind, I found out that after a year of trying that I am pregnant with my first child. At the time I thought I was only a few weeks and it wasn't until I went to the doctors that I had an even bigger shock - I was already 11 weeks gone!
I informed my now stunned husband as well as both set of parents and other family. I know have a small set of knitters knitting away for December 3rd (at the moment this is roughly when I'm due but I need to wait to get scanned and meet my midwife).
I have had awful morning sickness for the past few days which not only meant I couldn't work but I have had no energy to do anything but sleep, rest I've been told is good. It's all very surreal at the moment thinking that floating about inside me is a little embryo.
Normal service will resume over the next few days as I get back into the swing of things again. Thank you to everyone for crashing my Twitter app the other night with best wishes, it really did mean a lot that everyone is really supportive and a little tear was shed (I'm blaming the hormones, honestly).

I am starting this by stating I have money (Read last weeks here), this was because the morning of the ban the ATM decided to crash and thus take my card with it. My new card has arrived today, with pay day being tomorrow, there will be no pay day treats as the ban continues.
As yet there have been no new beauty purchases, I'm going to modify one of the rules and that is the walking home rule - this is because of health reasons as I cannot handle the huge hill with my knee. I have carried on walking to work the days I have not had a lift from husband.
At the moment it hasn't bothered me that much, I've managed to take a lunch with me or buy one for around a pound so it doesn't hinder me too much. This weekend is birthday present buying for my brother's girlfriend birthday, so I looking forward to shopping even if is for a present. We are also painting our house ready for the estate agents to give us estimates, so we can finally sell it and finally move on from a huge financial burden.
I hope everyone is coping well and not giving into temptation.

The colour is bright, stupidily bright, but it was love straight away, it was a good solid colour in two coats. The brush fans out perfectly and had no problems in applying it, as well as dried fast. The wear time is good, I got a good four days before the tiniest little chip on the edge. I loved it so much I took it off and refreshed it soon after.

I think we need to take a step back for a moment and think that the high street staple, Bourjois, is 150 years old. Everyday there are hundreds of beauty brands launching themselves to be the next big thing, while Bourjois has stood the test of time. They have still stayed on trend as well as keeping their delicate french charm.
I do own a few bits like the odd eye shadow, but recently I have started longing for the Healthy Mix Foundation, which when I went to London one of the girls dug out of her handbag for me to look at. Instantly loved the scent and *fanfare* the colour was perfect. This is my next foundation purchase for sure, then there was the limited edition lilac shimmer intense eye shadow from the beginning of the year (I'm still hunting this down). Oh, and I better not forget the Rainbow Connection 1-Second nail varnish, multi coloured glitter in a sheer pink/purple base.
Now onto my new Bourjois want, the new Cream Blush. A light cream to powder blush that produces a soft glow rather than something you feel like you are removing a layer of skin trying to blend. It has poppy extract to make it feel more comfortable feel, apricot extract for a healthy glow and mango extract for a softer touch. There are 4 colours: Nude Velvet, Healthy Glow (an apricot tone), Rose Tender and Sweet Cherry (Brown/Rose tone), and think that the majority would suit all skin tones.
All I can add is, "Damn you spending ban"
Available now in exclusively in Selfridges until 15th May where they will be in Boots, Superdrug and ASOS for the sum of £7.99
